in passing

Yesterday morning I took this shot of two sailboats crossing paths as they headed out for the day. Normally at this time of year the sky would be clear, but we’ve had quite a bit of cloudy, showery weather lately and it feels like summer hasn’t really started yet.

In some ways it’s good: I haven’t had to hand-water our new garden plants as much, the grass is still pretty green, and the fire hazard for the island is rated as “moderate” as opposed to “high” or “extreme”. Still, I bet island visitors would appreciate a few hot sunny days. Maybe come August?

    I’ve been enjoying our first cool summer in quite some time because I hate the heat. But all the clouds have been putting a bit of a damper on photography.

    A lovely calm scene. We too are having another wet, cool summer. We have two weeks of heat and now it’s more like late spring weather as opposed to summer!

    Love the shades of blue here … lovely. I’m hearing the same complaint from the Pacific Northwest: summer hasn’t begun yet! Hopefully you’ll get some warmer weather. : )
